, this is the latest coming out of the fbi. you probably have seen this. and says here, the fbi withheld findings about petraeus' affair from the white house and congressional leaders because the agency considered them the result of the criminal investigation that never reached the threshold of an intelligence probe. that's what they are saying. that's what the justice is saying, justice department. do you buy that? >> absolutely not. absolutely ridiculous. put congress aside for one moment. the president of the united states is entitled to know a key member of his foreign policy team, head of the cia, general petraeus is more of a player than any other cia director i'm aware of. he was sent around the world negotiating agreement was countries because of his vast military experience. thought you have a key player be under a cloud, ethical cloud, possibly subject to blackmail and intimidation. the -- attorney general and the fbi director certainly attorney general had the absolute obligation to tell that to the president and let him decide what he wanted to do. to me, that's -- this is not -- just a mat

? according to jake adelstein's reporting, which we confirmed, tadamasa goto made a deal with the fbi. he offered to become a rat and inform on his yakuza brothers. >> goto said, "here's the deal. i need to get in the united states to get my liver transplant, or i'm gonna die. i will give you the names of all our front companies in the united states." so in terms of not only criminal intelligence but sort of, you know, pure, i don't know, covert intelligence, goto represented a real find for the fbi. >> so the fbi made this deal? >> and they gave him a special visa to come into the united states. >> getting into the u.s. was one thing, but getting a liver transplant at a leading american medical center like ucla was something else altogether. >> what's the average waiting time for someone in california waiting for a liver transplant? >> it's probably realistically three years, and it could be much longer. >> not for tadamasa goto, who got a liver in just six weeks. california attorney larry eisenberg finds that surprising, especially since goto was number 80 on the waiting list. >> it sho

's an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed, and i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan and as head of the cia. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of cia with respect to this personal matter that he is now dealing with with his family and with his wife, and it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done, and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a sing the side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career

. the fbi is investigating and i don't know precisely what and i only know what i'm reading about this in "the new york times" and elsewhere, but the fbi is getting involved. is that something to do with the timing also because that sort of thing will leak out over throughout official washington? >> benghazi is not about libya. benghazi is about the policy of the obama administration to involve the united states without clarity to the american people. not only in libya, but throughout the whole of the arab world now in turmoil, benghazi is about the nse directing an operation that is perhaps shadowy, perhaps has a presidential finding and perhaps doesn't and takes arms and men and puts them into syria and this is a very large story and it's right in front of us for the second term. >> boy, this thing will unravel like crazy. thank you ever so much. we appreciate it. >> coming up on youed kudlow, the politics of reaching common sense and common ground on the fiscal cliff. did the gop go wobbly? i say stick to your economic principles. that's next on kudlow.

's an unnamed fbi agent involved in all of this. apparently that kelley had approached and asked for his help in dealing with these anonymous e-mails. this agent also apparently became obsessed with jill kelley and was orderred off the investigation. at one point, he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. this thing is sprawling and confu confusing. a lot of possible ini did cessions. defense officials today are denying there was any affair here between general john allen and jill kelley and saying some of the descriptions of these e-mails are mischaracterized. there's still a lot we don't know. >> it this is getting bigger. this is a much bigger story. more will be revealed. thank you very much, eamon. much of the evidence the fbi is uncovering is coming from a shared gmail account where the parties log in separately and read drafted e-mails that were never sent. those drafts were deleted, but they were still retrieved by the government. that's very interesting. they weren't even sent. so whether it's for business or personal, do we have any privacy at all in the digital world? >

involving e-mails. the fbi is apparently received 30,000 pages of e-mails between the two that were potentially inappropriate there. but kelly's relationship, whatever it was, with john allen, apparently also caused some concern with paula broadwell. broadwell is the biographer of general david petraeus, who has admitted now to having an affair with the cia director. that's brought down his career. broadwell apparently felt that jill kelly's attentions to petraeus and her social relationship with him might be a threat to her up relationship and apparently cement some e-mails to kelly. we are not clear at all on what those e-mails were all about, guys. but one of the interesting things here is the technique that broadwell and petraeus used to hide the existence of their e-mail correspondence, they opened up anonymous g mail accounts under fictitious names i and simply sent draft e-mails, compose a draft e-mail and not send it, then the other party could check that e-mail account later and find that draft e-mail and read it and delete it without actually sending it and caution the e-m

to the fbi and the authorities or there are some ceos that don't want to do that because they don't want their customers to know they've been hacked. >> it's a hard decision. i don't think the right answer is that you have to go to the fbi in every single case. but what ceos should recognize is there are some people in the government who can help out. the fbi has a lot of capacity and they could help mitigate the overall risk to some of these cyber intrusions. department of homeland security with the department of defense can be helpful. usually in one of the attacks the first attack you discover is not really what you should be worried about. meanwhile all of your intellectual property flows out the door for two years or secret information about transactions you may be working on is going to another country or another firm. if you see one incident it's worth it as a leader to take it sear yuzly and probably go to the fbi. >> should you assume everything in your e-mail is being read by somebody else? >> you should not assume everything is being read by the government. we of course take t

in this case. longwell himself worked at intrinsic as well as martoma. he was arrested by the fbi this morning at his florida home, we're told, but the two of them worked at cr intrinsic. one reason i'm told cohen is is upset today or as of yesterday is that cr intrinsic was not just an isolated unit, it provided research and trading for other parts of the firm, not just what they were doing specifically. it's very troubling information for the firm and for cohen as well and i agree. it would seem to be another shoe to drop in this ongoing investigation. >> let's also be clear, kate, that neither mr. cohen nor sac itself with accused of any wrong doing. this is a gentleman who works for that unit. we have scott cohn on the phone with us. scott has covered most of the big high profile insider trading cases over the last several years. good to have you on. this is an aggressive u.s. attorney, right? he doesn't mess around. since 2009, he's brought some 72 cases of insider trading. right? >> right. it's worth noting these inv investigations predate him. we're seeing a lot of these investigations
